Lunch buddies

Today I had lunch with Aurora, Qila, Jack and Daisy.
Although I have spent so much time with all of these amazing beluga whales and harbour porpoises I never tire of seeing them over and over again.

Vancouver Aquarium before opening hours

On my little morning stroll through Stanley Park I came along the Vancouver Aquarium where there were no visitors around yet. So I could take a few pictures of the lovely statue Chief of the Undersea World by Bill Reid as well as the poster inviting people to visit the new Discover Rays touch pool exhibit.

After Hours at the Aquarium

After Hours at the Vancouver Aquarium is always amazing. Therefore, we try to attend as often as possible, and this time we could enjoy a Halloween themed After Hours which was really, really nice.
The weather was great, too! No rain at all.

We enjoyed exploring the galleries and seeing the animals in a different light.
Both harbour seals and Steller sea lions were outside and getting ready for the night. Others, like the belugas or harbour porpoises, were busy playing with the pumpkins in their habitats.

There was a beautiful display of carved pumpkins to be admired, too, and it was indeed quite hard to pick one.
